Cycling's golden boy falls from grace

International headlines pick up on the congressional hearing in the US, which seeks to uncover the truth about how the US ambassador died in Libya in September. And are EU nationals throwing themselves into the fray in Syria? UK authorities are investigating a possible jihadist link with an NHS doctor. Finally, Lance Armstrong is named and shamed: the champion cyclist falls from grace in the US media.

The Wall Street journal reports that security was reduced in Benghazi just before the attack that resulted in the death of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The Daily Beast looks at the political blame game, as the Republicans use this opportunity to criticise the state department’s handling of the affair. An editorial in The Independent says it's just the latest in a history of failures from the Obama administration concerning this case.

And Lance Armstrong is on the front of the New York Times, as an anti-doping agency names and shames him for drug use. Even his lawyer can’t stem the barrage of negative press about the champion cyclist.
